I am comparing the cisco ISR 4331 and RV 345 model and come up with a question:

ISR 4331 cost more than $1000:

but only come with very limited Performance:
    Aggregate throughput:  100 Mbps

with extra unknown cost for upgrading from base package to performance package, it can reach 300Mbps.

RV 345 cost about $300,

https://www.cdw.com/product/cisco-small-business-rv345-router-rack-mountable/4557214

but come with an excellent Performance:

   Firewall throughput (TCP)    900 Mbps
    VPN throughput (IPSec)      650 Mbps
    VPN throughput (PPTP)     100 Mbps

It would be no-brainer that everyone should buy RV 345 instead of ISR 4331? then who is going to buy ISR 4331 instead of RV345?
